      My surgery, a completely 'petrified gall bladder' without the normal pain associated with mal-functioning gall bladders was rapidly and successfully extracted several years ago. The operation was complicated by the large, calcified condition of the gall bladder but regardless, the operation and post recovery process were swift, comfortable and long lasting, e.g. no complications or problems thereafter. His skill is much appreciated; his staff, professional at every level. RLF

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
